5.0 out of 5 stars Stories of Angels and Guitars, 8 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stories Of Angels & Guitars (Audio CD)
Well, she sings like an angel especially on the opening track and she plays guitar better than almost any female I have heard with a distinctive style of her own.
Buy the album and get to any of her gigs.
Ace!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another classic, 7 Feb 2012
This review is from: Stories Of Angels & Guitars (Audio CD)
Another unique and beautiful album from singer songwriter Patsy Matheson. Years of honing her craft as a solo artist and member of the ground breaking quartet 'Waking The Witch' shine through to great effect on this new album, which show cases Patsy's breath taking lyrics and peerless vocal delivery.

It is easy to understand why Patsy is held in such high regard by others in her trade; recent tours have seen her being accompanied by (not providing support to!)Clive Gregson, as well as working with other great musicians and performers such as USA based Jason Feddy and ex WTW colleague Becky Mills.

This lady is no flash in the pan, no studio product, but a bona fide craftswoman in the greatest musical tradition; it is easy to say 'if you only buy one album...' but this album would certainly be a main contender.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classy singer/songwriters 2nd solo album, 2 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stories Of Angels & Guitars (Audio CD)
This is the first album I have bought by Patsy Matheson.She has apparently been playing together with Clive Gregson recently on tour, who is a well established mature singer songwriter who is highly regarded and has excellent taste, & who knows a good fellow artist. After half a dozen plays, this album has definitely grown on me. Simply arranged with her acoustic guitar, and tasteful jazzy tinged double bass and subtle drums on some tracks, the songs gradually reveal themselves. It is a quiet intimate album, with close miking, you can hear the squeeky strings on the guitar at times.The album titles refers to 2 of the tracks, No Angel, and Hundred Guitars. Generally quiet, introspective and slightly melancholy, there is not a weak track, she has a fine clear singing voice, and the songs tell some interesting stories. Classy stuff, nicely done, she is maybe still establishing herself as a solo artist, but overall a fine and rewarding album. I saw her live in concert with Becky Mills at The Old Ship Inn, Lowdham on 8th February, a charming relaxed gig. She played several tacks from the new album. The overall standout track that had the audience and pub landlord singing along heartily to the chorus was If You Ask Me, probably the pick of the bunch. Also poignant as a maudlin track was Sylvia Jean, a family recollection of her mothers love for an RAF test pilot who tragically died before he married the young barmaid from a Portmouth pub he had fallen head over heels for. Hundred Guitars is about a man who collects guitars to hang on the wall to look at as decoration, rather than to play,and also treats his women the same, an interesting analogy. The closing number, Water is over the Weir was also a set highlight. If you get a chance to see her on her current tour, grab it, as live perfomance brings some of these songs to another dimension, with extra context adding a great deal.

Strange how singer songwriters can be around for years and then suddenly produce a masterpiece. Patsy has already given us two solo albums and three further ones with "Waking The Witch" but nothing prepares you for this magnificent album.
The level of writing by Patsy, her singing and the production are pure quality. Its no wonder its got the rave reviews it deserves from the press. Songs such as Sylvia Jean, No Angel and Water Is Over The Weir are stupendous. Perhaps the outstanding track is If You Ask Me, which Patsy has been performing for a couple of years and the way it has evolved into a kind of jazzy-style love ballad is remarkable.
In a world of Adeles this album puts most English (never mind Yorkshire) singers to shame. All praise to her playing as well, along with Jon Short on bass. This is pure class. Buy it without hesitation.
